FQMT11

that is “Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics” was a relatively large conference in Prague where diverse aspects of quantum mechanics have been discussed. It has been organized (mainly) by Theo Nieuwenhuizen and Václav Špička. It’s been long I was at such broad yet interesting conference that covered everything from black holes to biomotors and I enjoyed much. Ciprian and Frans were also there. Many talks (hopefully, including mine) were inspiring and I was able to get new ideas and finish some hard calculations.

The plot of the organizers was to habituate us to everyday portion of classical music so that we get use to it, develop an addiction and will attend further conferencies in series. This has worked quite well, I must admit. Being a Slav, I could appreciate typical Slavonic hospitality that stems from the deep of the heart, may look clusmy and eccentric, yet leads to unusual and memorable experience. To give an example, we have been welcomed by His Eminence Dominique Duka, Archbishop of Prague, in his seat cathedral and were allowed to get intoxicated in Senat of Check Republic.

Many thanks, Theo and Václav, we look forward to the next conference like this.
